Try as we might the stars won't shine for us.
Streaming down in silent ways,
We say that stars are like eyes,
Peeping toms in the night skies
Staring, daring us to go further.
Who says planets don't align
To bring us pleasure, life
A sign that something's right
Now, here in the ether.
Daily jumps through daily hoops
For treats, rewards that rarely
Come through, but still
We try and try again.
Someday soon, not now
Not then, but when
We do break the hoops
The stars will smile,
Then as we try, might the stars shine for us.
